Sometime between March break and April the snow all melted and we got to work in the garden. You can see that the north bed is quite pretty in early spring, all crocuses and Siberian squill. Everything else looks pretty sketchy, though.
All these pictures seem to be Cordelia. I think it's the dress. (Yes, it's the dress from Auntie Morgan's wedding. Cordelia picked it out for Ursa's party. Perfect for flying kites and eating ice cream! Fortunately it's machine washable.)
Where earlier in the month (see above) I had nice crocuses and Siberian squill, by the time I took this picture I had a mess of greenery, some of which is weeds and some of which is plants and some is in-between (mint, anyone?), and plenty of which is daffodils which never bothered to flower. So I took these pictures so I can try and figure out what greenery turns out to be useful and what is just greenery.
One of our main gardening activities this year has been moving this pile of leaves around. Here is Blake moving it to the area by the south fence. I think next I'm going to move it to the raspberry patch to keep the weeds down.
